I have used XP pro to create data dvd backups of folders and files on my own pc with no problem. i have also created a dvd data backup with data that has been put under shared documents with no problem. but when i have tried to backup data that is on a pc that has the files shared, the program allows me to select the files to back up but when it starts to write, the software program dissapears. I have attached the screen shots. i have made sure all of the folders are shared on the server. I hope you can help.
